Scripture: Psalm 23
Theme: Psalms

1.  The Lord's my Shepherd. I'll not want
    For anything that's needed.
    My bed is made in pastures green.
    All I require is heeded.

2.  Of quiet waters I drink deep.
    The Lord restores my being
    And guides in paths of righteousness,
    My soul from evil freeing.

3.  Though shades of death encompass me
    And danger hovers near me,
    The rod and staff my Shepherd holds
    Will comfort, save, and cheer me.

4.  My Shepherd even spreads a feast 
    In spite of foes who'd harm me,
    And soothes my head with healing oil.
    What fear could now alarm me?

5.  My cup is full, and more than full,
    Such lavish love outpouring
    That I will live each night and day
    My Shepherd Lord adoring.
